Aqua Security, a pure-play cloud native security provider, has acquired Argon, a specialist in software supply chain security.
Argon and Aqua now offer the industry’s first solution to secure all stages of software build and release. Shifting further “left,” Aqua Security’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) is now the only solution that can protect the full software development lifecycle (SDLC) from code through build to runtime, ensuring the end-to-end integrity of applications.
“With the addition of Argon to the Aqua Platform, we continue to execute on our vision of full lifecycle cloud native protection,” says Dror Davidoff, CEO and Co-Founder, Aqua. “There’s a lot of noise in the growing cloud native security market, but few vendors offer true CNAPP capabilities. The addition of Argon’s unique technology propels Aqua even further ahead of the competition making us the only vendor in the space that fully protects how cloud applications are developed, deployed, and run. We are thrilled to welcome Argon to the family and bring our customers end-to-end cloud native application protection.”
“Leading cloud services providers are releasing software as frequently as every 15 seconds. Humans cannot keep up with the velocity, and the threat of supply chain attacks has never been greater. The industry demands a new approach,” says Eilon Elhadad, CEO and Co-Founder, Argon. “We believe in Aqua’s vision for cloud native security and its mission to protect enterprises in the cloud. We are eager to join forces and become the only vendor to allow organisations to not only run, but also build software, securely.”
